Labour Party's presidential candidate, Peter Obi has given a reply to people who say that Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, the Labour Party governorship candidate for Lagos State doesn't have experience.
According to Obi, he was Gbadebo's age when he emerged Governor of Anambra state.
According to him, people were saying that he had no experience in governance during his campaign, but he proved them wrong.
Obi spoke during an interview with Arise TV today.
“The labour party candidate for Lagos remains the best candidate… I can tell you he’s a fantastic guy”, Obi said during the interview.
In reply to a question about Gbadebo's age and lack of experience in Nigerian politics and public service, the following conversation ensued between Arise TV's Rufai and Obi.
Rufai: They say GRV doesn’t have experience.
Obi: Yes. He doesn’t have experience in corruption.
Obi said that politics is a collaboration between the young and the old, and that there were many who came into governance without having any experience, and that one could learn to serve the people while doing his job.
He concluded by saying, “The job of a leader is always listening and learning.”
